Salutations! Today we don't just have /one/ Word of the Day... no no no. Today, I'd like to introduce you to the days of the week! 😁

First things first, though! We had an --amazing-- club meeting last week. Pretty chill, pretty conversational -- and I got my butt kicked at both Kahoot and Gimkit. 😂

Onto the Words! So, there're a lot of ways to say the days of the week in Chinese. You can start 'em off with 星期 (xīng qī),周 (zhōu),or even sometimes 礼拜(lǐ bài). For today, we'll look at the way I first learned that sequence: 星期 (xīng qī)

So, if you know numbers, this might make a lot of sense. Essentially, the days of the week are numbered (Monday = 星期一, with 一 yī meaning "one"). The only exception is Sunday, which can be called 星期日 xīng qī rì , with 日 meaning "sun," or 星期天 xīng qī tiān, with 天 meaning "sky" or "heaven."

Okay, okay. Enough dallying. Here's the quick list:
星期一 xīng qī yī Monday
星期二 xīng qī èr Tuesday
星期三 xīng qī sān Wednesday
星期四 xīng qī sì Thursday
星期五 xīng qī wǔ Friday
星期六 xīng qī liù Saturday
星期天 xīng qī tiān Sunday

Thanks guys! I hope that made sense 🙃
